In viewing this forum I see there are many people that have the love for the water and spending time with family and friends.
I am the same way and can't remember missing a weekend at the lake this season . Most weekends, both days.
Obviously this puts hours on a boat (and I know that there have been hour threads previous to this ) but I have already put 90 on mine this summer and have more trips to make.
Interested in seeing the numbers from everyone else this season.

I haven't kept track that closely. Funny I was just thinking about this too. The gauge on my MC 205V says 224 hrs. We ski a lot but we don't go far to do it, so I think I'm racking up about 40-50 hrs per season.

We got our X-1 on June 28th or around there, it had .6 hours on when we got it, from the testing and what not. Right now i think we have 43.5 hours on and we only have about a month if were lucky before we have to start thinking about winterization.

We put almost a 100 hours on the first year we got it because I was still in HS and lived where the boat is with some friends. Now the people that use it most (me) are down state and a couple hours away, and dont get up their as often as we like. Maybe put on 20-25 hours this season, which has been our average the past couple years. Its sad.

Picked the boat, 2007 PS197 up on April 14th with .3 hrs and I was almost to 90 hrs last weekend. That aslo includes almost 3 weeks down time for when they had to replace the tranny. I was only up to 13 hrs when I got the boat back on June 1st.

Some years I put over 100 on the boat but this year with the fiancee in grad school we have not made it out much. The times I go are before work. I drop in next to the ski spot, board for 2 hours, and put it right back on the trailer. I might be at 50 hours since January.

I picked up my boat in May with 100 hours on it and have put on 110 so far. I'll put another 10-20 on it. I'll put at least 10 on it this weekend.

The bad part is that about half of the hours are just from cruising. The hour meter is not a real indicator of how much wear is on the engine, IMO.

Then when I go to resell, the same guys screaming that boats are not supposed to stay in the garage, they are meant to be used will probably tell me that there are too many hours on mine.
